ARROGANCE: Chinese Communist Party Mouthpiece ‘Global Times’ Calls For “Punishment” Against “Small” Canada

Newspaper controlled by the Chinese Communist Party takes insulting and threatening line towards Canada – showing what the Communist regime really thinks about our nation.

Behind all the friendly globalist talk, we’re now finding out what China really thinks about Canada.

The Global Times – a newspaper controlled and run by the Communist Party of China – has taken an insulting, arrogant, and threatening line towards Canada.

As noted by Reuters, the paper attacked Canada for proposed measures against steel being dumped into Canada (often from China) and then shipped into the US to bypass tariffs.

Here are some key parts of the Global Times article:

“Canada’s steel imports from China only make up 9.8 percent of its total imports, with nearly no aluminum imports from China. In fact, Canada is more like a US colony economically, and half of its trade is with the US.”

“Meanwhile, China is Canada’s second largest trading partner, with the fastest growth in trade. The two countries enjoy sound trade ties and have no major disputes. But by following the US suit, Canada is acting like a crafty merchant.”

“Chinese people used to hold full respect for Western countries. But as their exchanges grow, these countries begin unveiling their selfish and cunning nature.”

After saying they doubt that Canada and the European Union can be convinced by Washington to “go against China,” the article takes a darker, and more insulting line:

“We despise the way Canada vacillates between China and the US, and won’t readily let this go. Beijing should take punitive measures against Ottawa’s actions that undermine the interests of Chinese business, sending a warning to others.”

“China’s Ministry of Commerce will figure out the most effective way to carry out the punishment. We have professional teams to cope with small countries of this kind.”

Of course, nothing like this gets written without the approval of those at the top of China’s Communist Party, so regardless of any attempts to claim otherwise, this is clearly how China’s government views Canada.

They want “punitive measures” taken against us, using us as an “example” to send a warning to others. They arrogantly refer to us as a “small” country, and say they have “effective” ways to “carry out the punishment.”

The arrogance shows that – despite China calling Canada a ‘colony’ of the US – the Communist regime wants to turn us into an economic colony of China.

Their attitude is about dictating to Canada – a far cry from media friendly rhetoric of “global cooperation.”

Once again, we see that dealing with China is not like dealing with democratic allies. And yet, rather than show strength and respond with toughness to China’s arrogance, Justin Trudeau is busy picking a fight with the democratic Indian government. He must be too cowardly and to weak to stand up for Canada against the ‘basic dictatorship’ he loves so much.
